    You are promoting your information with a little more accuracy, as this fire started along side Happy Valley at the base of Telluride in the community of Rose Hills. I have been working on a portfolio that will prove how prominent Rose Hills is, as a community that has carried the same name for over 1000 years. So to put is simply, El Sereno is a part of Rose Hills. I am the President of LA-32 NC which covers four communities, and they are all independent communities.
    If you care for the details about anything in 90032, please reach me for accuracy. El Sereno is only a small part of the area I represent and this fire was actually in Happy Valley neasrest Rose Hills as the address indicates on Amethyst, Clearly in the community of Rose Hills.

  2. Thank you for reporting on the brush fires. I saw this one and it was pretty scary as I drove near my home. I don’t really care what you call my neighborhood, but I want to encourage people to NOT use firecrackers. A little firework fun is not worth the potential for burning.
